Can't really define it, as I don't even like the standard flieger style, but I'll give an example. Pic related is seiko snkh63. I love this watch. The only problem with it is that it's mechanical, and while I could live with it's accuracy, it broke down on me twice now and I'm fed up. I want quartz. There are similar quartz watches (field watch style I guess), but with no day.

I have to know, I know eco-drive is solar powered quartz, but is this watch user service-able?

also wanted to give you a little idea of why i have this perspective - i'm a college student

i would never consider throwing 2k at something that isn't a car or a house/apt

however, if you are rich, and you want your tudor for the status alone, i would not buy it. most people don't even know that tudor is by rolex, and if you are in richer social circles they'll simply see you as having stopped short of getting the real thing.

less embarassing to not have one, than to have the half assed one. ofc it looks like a nice quality watch to you and me, because it really is. some snobby fucker won't think so though ("SHITTER SHITTER SHITTER")

I want a quartz watch for it's better accuracy, but I don't know what Seiko Quartz are worth.

What's the general consensus on strap adapters for g-shocks? I want to replace the shitty factory strap on mine with a nato or zulu one, and I'm seeing that I can either get a cheap plastic/resin adapter, or a steel one for almost as much as I paid for the watch itself.

Also, perhaps there's a eurofag here who knows where to buy those fuckers in yurop, because all the sources I can find are in the US and it's gonna take forever to ship.

Well, I was gonna settle for a resin adapter anyway, so if these are at least as durable, that's good enough for me. Besides, the factory strap is rubber/resin, and it's kept up rather nicely in terms of durability, so I guess this should work.

Hey guys I currently have a Citizen, it's automatic and waterproof and very solid.

I want to buy a more classy watch for every day at the office, but I don't want to spend a fortune.
I've narrowed it down to a 40mm Rose Gold/Brown Leather combo and I'm now between Daniel Wellington and MVMT.
They both cost about $100, but which one is better?

This Citizen was my first watch so I don't know what to look for.

>Omega is 20% of Rolex effort for 80% of Rolex prices.

Are you sure? What's your source of this info? And more importantly, are you talking from experience? Have you ever owned either of the two?

Omega is a brand with a marketing department full of bullshit, yes, but also is Rolex. Have you seen the "It's takes a whole year to make a Rolex" campaign?

That doesn't mean any of those two make bad watches. On the contrary, both made excelent tiempieces for the price asked, but Omega actually delivers more bang for your money.

For example, the finishing of the movement of my sapphire sandwich Speedy is quite better than the finishing of any sport movement from Rolex, both being sold as "instrument watches" both Omega is considerably cheaper; Cellini being the obvious exception, being at a tie.

Don't judge Omega solely on the basis that it now belongs to Swatch and the bad things said on the internet, you should buy one and I guarantee you'll change your mind the moment you strap it on your wrist.

Couple of fellas have already asked me this irl but since I have yet to use -and abuse a little- of one, I can't yet tell.

There's pros and cons of having a new movement, an in-house in particular, but that precise caliber is yet to be tested.

What I can tell you is that I have a new bronze Black Bay and till todya, I have found it very reliable.

Forget about the "in-house" fad in the industry. If a movement is good, then great, if not, doesn't matter is its exclusive or not.

Remeber the Patek Philippe 5970 -of which there is a nice article right now at Hodinkee-, has also a Lemania based caliber in its interior.

Well, when the case, bracelet and dial finishing on an Aqua Terra are obviously inferior to a Seiko Brightz when comparing both up close and personal (as I have), it tends to leave a bit of a bad impression on you.

Personally, I loathe all Maxicase Rolexes, but having handled a few up close its certainly obvious that rhe case dial and bracelet finishing are simply on another planet than the Omega's I've handled.

Personally, I care very little for movement decoration and much more for its engineering prowess, and for me modern Omega will never reach the heights that were attained with the 56x/75x movement and the Lemania 5100 Speedmasters.

Incidentally, as you are wealthy enough, you should get a holy grail speedy (Lemania 5100 in a moonwatch case, for those who don't know).

Not widespread on Ebay? There are tons of these questionable watches there. An exact copy of the case or movement isn't likely for the Chinese, but perhaps modified like the converted 12 to 24 hour movements found on these watches being a good example. The current Raketa company has openly condemned these watches before, meaning large numbers of parts escaped the factory at some point, and possibly they're trying to hide their previous dubious attempts at saving the company from going under.

I can't really start taking pics at my workbench, that would really be pushing it. But I'll try to find online pics though or post links.

Right now I'm working on my own shit, a Tissot 2481/Omega 1481. I just punched out the broken curb pin. I had to order a new balanc assembly and hairspring stud, but when I installed it I broke the regulator curb pin like some Creutzfeld-Jakob asshole. So more work for me, I either figure out how to make a new one without a lathe or order a NOS Tissot regulator.

Is that the same 2481 that had a broken 3rd wheel?

Also, there are a few 75$~ parts movements on the bay right now.

Hey, I completely got about that. Turns it was fine, just that there was so much hardened crap on the pivot that it looked like it had broken off.

Seiko SARB-065 has a similar dial, but it's way more flashy and way more thicker.

Nice to know.

I wondered back then, do you have only the movement or a complete watch?

The complete watch, minus a strap, but it's not a Tissot. It's a Renis that looks like this, but with a dark metallic dial.

I hope the plating on yours looks at least somewhat better.

>> No.56529045

It does but there's still some wear around the edges. I'm not sure if it's possible to replate it, the plating looks more as if the watch is made from rough, dark steel and the top has some really deep brushing that I'm not sure if it's in the plating or the base metal.

Can't argue with that.

The Shogun is a wonderful, piece but for the price i think they could have at least used something akin to a 8L35 instead of a 6R15.


>>56529579
The Monster does have a unique look to it, and in person it looks even better (arguably even more peculiar).

I like it more that the SKX, and i have both.

Yeah. Even my Borealis has a 4R36 and you can find those for under $300 if you're lucky. The 6R15 isn't terrible, though. Pretty accurate and robust.

I like the monster more than the SKX, as well. I want to love the SKX, but I just don't. I love the case and have no problem with the sexy pepsi bezel...it's really just the face and hands that I can't stand. And the bracelet, of course.

Okay guys.
I need an expert here.
Im looking to buy a watch.
The watch is "Michael Kors MK8507"
The question is: what kind of coating is likely to be used here?.
Is it just painted dark, is it darkened steel?

I really dont want to buy a watch where the paint chips off or that looks shit when there are tiny scratches on the surface, that reveal the true color.

Monsters can still be found at sub-200$ range. The Gen2 pre-prospex SRP307 is beginning to be rare.

My only real issue with the SKX is finding a proper strap. I got the super oyster but i can't quite get used to the heft so next up i'll try something much more haram.

Plus, plenty of aftermarket hands and dials you can stick into the SKX.

It's called a PVD coating and I can pretty much guarantee it'll start to rub off in under a year. Sinn makes the most durable black finishes out there, I hear. They're great watches, too. Out of your budget, though, if you're looking at MK. You probably don't want to hear it if you like the way an all-black watch looks, but just avoid them. They look angsty as hell and that one, in particular, looks pretty illegible.
>>56529892
Just pick up a nice, bright nato strap!
I would consider that, but I'm not big on getting into my watches. I'll pop it open to adjust the +/- lever or swap out a battery in a quartz...strap changes, too, of course. Anything else and I just know I'm gonna break something. Those tiny hands are too delicate for muh hamfists.
>>56530048
Casio don't make automatic watches. They make digital ones. They're popular because their watches are really really affordable and really really reliable. This guy >>56530004 had some good suggestions. The Bambino is classy as fuck. Check out the Casio Edifice (if you fancy a chronograph function) for a decent <$100 speedy lookalike. Hamiltons are pretty nice, too, even though people give them shit for being a part of the Swatch group now. If you can spend around $300, you can get a Jazzmaster Thinline or a Khaki on Jomashop. Also, see if you can find something used to save even a little more. Watchuseek has a great community of sellers and with a little patience you can find some great deals.

yeah my wrist is very thin. The shop keeper suggested me a Hamilton watch, it was lovely, it had the same functions of the watch I bought, but it was even bigger than the Tissot watch I'm wearing now.
The picture I took is quite bad honestly, the watch doesn't look this big compared to my wrist irl

>> No.56530954

You should have left the shop, measured your wrist, and then looked online for smaller options.

You bought the better of two watches, well done, but there are hundreds of other options.
